Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Repentance for Terri would involve developing courage so that she could stand up and confront John’s overbearing behavior. She would also need to work hard to rediscover and name her own thoughts, feelings, and ideas rather than always deferring to her husband’s. #2 When someone deeply betrays us and will not take responsibility for the deception, the relationship itself may be beyond repair. But you can learn from this situation and move ahead into new relationships with more wisdom. #3 If you are in a destructive relationship, you can change it. First, you must recognize what’s wrong, because you can’t change what you don’t see. With God’s help, change, growth, and healing are possible. #4 All relationships will experience pain, and it is not proof of a bad relationship or even a harmful one. Pain is a natural part of life, and it is not always caused by others. It is up to us to decide whether our relationships are relatively healthy, if sometimes difficult, or unhealthy and destructive.

You're the zipper on my boots, the bouillon in my broth, and the chocolate on my sundae You're the pedal on my bike and the lace in my shoes. The vows were said, and so began our happily-ever-after. But all too soon the pedals came off the bike. So now what? What happens when criticism takes up residence and you are the odd man out? Criticism was not our guest. It took over our home. It sat at our table, rode in our car, and slept in our bed. And time and time again, it put its hand on my mouth as if to suffocate my thoughts, feelings, or my good intentions. I began to die emotionally and lose my own identity. Does God care? Yes, emphatically, He does. This is my journey of trusting God and learning what He means to me. It is the assurance that He cared for me and gave me the strength to claim my life back and live, knowing that God cares about a broken person with a broken heart. I also realized He was walking with me as I traveled to find The Long Road Back To Me. I hope my book encourages you as well as gives you the assurance that God has your answer - and GOD IS THE ANSWER.
